We reserved on Mother’s day; the restaurant was FULL. Our Service, the food, the ambiance, the wait, and especially the kindness and patience of our server, everything was outstanding! It was our first visit, and will definitely not be the last.

Friendly staff. In for Mother’s Day for dinner. Service was leisurely, but otherwise attentive, and, with the portions so large, the time to relax and talk between courses was a benefit!

All was pretty good except for the service. We had to ask for water refills several times and service seemed slow as it took us 2 hours start to finish to complete our dinner service. I also had to have the server adjust our bill since she had charged us for a dessert that was supposed to be free with the Marco’s Dinner for two special. If I hadn’t caught that we would have been over-charged by $9.

While the experience was better than our last visit, the food was ok and overpriced for what it was. The chicken was dry and the pasta was undercooked.

Maggiano's has been a long time favorite restaurant of mine. Originally introduced to Maggiano's in the 90s in Chicago. The Cincinnati location is now the closest one to me and it does not disappoint. The quality is still there and the service is excellent.

The food was great! We were a party of 5 and we did the family style for Mother’s Day. The waiter failed to serve the fruit plate but since I asked several times he did give it to us to go. We did not get enough food. We expected lots of food for 5 adults and we all were disappointed since we thought we would receive more than enough. Next time we certainly will not order family style. I know mom was disappointed since she loves dessert and the 2 pieces of dessert were only enough for a taste for each person. Again what food we received was delicious but not enough for the family style. Much cheaper to order individual even though our server encouraged us to order family style.

Always a good meal and excellent service. Go here for special occasions every year like Mothers Day, birthdays, anniversary. Request a booth and they have ALWAYS accommodated request. This is an excellent Italian restaurant for a chain. Never disappointing. Also, portions are very generous. Usually end up taking some home.

Maggiano's Food Quality is consistently Good, as is the Service and value received. I was impressed with the fact that while there for a busy Mother's Day, we were seated exactly at our reservation time, and had no measurable wait for our table. Their lighter take menu options are great for those of us seeking flavorful albeit reduced colorie entree options.

If it had not been for our amazing service I would've given it a 1 star. Our food was over cooked, pasta was extremely watery and the salad was bathed dressing. I had hoped for better from Maggiano's. Its becoming another Olive Garden.

I made a reservation for Mother’s Day morning after looking online at the brunch menu. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were told the normal brunch menu was not being served. Basically we either had to have the lunch/dinner menu or choose from 4 brunch options. My reservation was for 10:30am, and I don’t want spaghetti or steak. If I had known the brunch menu wasn’t being served I would have made reservations elsewhere and not have wasted my time here. But it wasn’t listed online, and we didn’t know until we were even seated. We knew at that point we couldn’t go anywhere else because they all had reservations too. It just doesn’t make sense to me why you WOULDNT offer the brunch menu on a day that it is very obvious that’s what people are expecting.

We enjoyed our dinner. The waitress was great. The food isn't consistent. We ate there last month and the food was better in April then in May. We would go back. Just expected the food and sangria to taste as flavorful.

An absolutely magical experience. We had a server named Michael. He was the best server that we have had anywhere. We were dining with a couple from out of town. Mike explained the menu and special items in such detail that it was like painting a picture of each item his service was excellent. He did a great job of timing the pace of our salads, appetizers, entrees and finally dessert. We never felt rushed and although he doted on us he always respected our parties desire to talk with each other.

The food was magnificent. My family loves the classic dishes while my friends enjoyed two of the best meals they ever had.

If you go ask for Mike.

We have been to this location quite a few times. Always had great service, great food, and a great experience! My family has to be gluten free and every time the chef and the manager has come out to check on us make sure that our food was satisfactory but also to make sure that it is cooked properly. We love Maggianos and will return!

The food and service were good, however, the coffee was terrible. This was especially disturbing as this was a brunch when coffee would seem to be one of the most popular beverage choices.

My husband and I LOVED the food. We have been here before so we were really looking forward to it. The service we had was not the best. We never had our water glasses refilled and was never asked if we wanted another glass of wine. Our waitress didn’t tell us about the pasta menu located inside the bigger menu. Our food came out in a timely manner but we were dissatisfied with our overall service at a night establishment like that.
